    I'm not as worried anymore since I just bought renters insurance and individualized my equipmennt so it is covered no matter what....BUT:

    I want to get some tips for shooting in rainy and another potentially hazardous conditions. I'm always afraid of lens fog, getting the camera wet, etc...but really don't know how much abuse it can take.

    If you have any experience, ideas, tips, etc. I would appreciate hearing them all.

    Thanks!!

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I've heard plastic bags are handy.. put the camera body inside the bag and cut a hole for the lense, it keeps most of the important bits of the camera dry if you are shooting in the rain and because the lense sticks out you can still zoom/manual focus. I try not to take mine out in any more than drizzle however, even though it is insured.
